Pineapple Paletas

Serves 6-8 Prep Time 3 minutes   Cook Time 8 minutes   Rated:

I love Mexican food, there is a Mexican ebook with my name on it, if you weren't up to speed with that one. SO many great flavours that are fresh and authentic as well as a few made up by me, that are my take on Mexican ideas.

Paletas have come into their own in Australia of late, I have seen them a few times at night markets or foodie events. But nothing beats your own. Don't stop at pineapple...try your fave fruits and see! You can absolutely convert this recipe to be any flavour fruit you have handy or love!
